Oustide dining at Walt Disney World Resort 

There's just something about dining outdoors that makes the meal taste extra delicious. And in Orlando we serve up plenty of fantastic food with a view.

Dining under the shade of palm trees, enjoying a lakeside breeze, or people watching along a bustling avenue are just some of Orlando's greatest gastro-perks. But the premier perk is that Orlando visitors can enjoy al fresco dining all year long!

Grab your shades and take a tour of our top choices for outdoor dining in Orlando.
